    I've seen so many beautifully photographed Cyps in their habitat that I couldn't post these without working on them a bit. Their natural setting isn't developed yet, and I have these enclosed in chicken wire because last fall some critter decided it needed a salad. So their "natural" backgrounds are ugly and didn't show off the flowers very well. Maybe I got carried away...

    All these Cyps are tempting. I wish I had a place to grow them.

    Dot. Some day, when I go to Porters, may I have a tour of your gardens? Your photos of you gardens are always so beautiful.

    Anytime, Marilyn. Just let me know when you are coming -- I'm hardly ever at the greenhouse during the non-orchid show months.
